In a stylesheet, namespace prefixes are defined by @namespace.  It 
doesn't matter what prefixes the document defines, they are independent 
from each other and completely unrelated to this issue.

This issue is about ensuring that things like Selectors API which use 
Selectors, but define prefixes using different mechanisms, aren't forced 
to use case insensitive prefixes, even when it's not possible.
